Jem/Jem 555 - I know the specs, but do they FEEL different?

I am considering picking up a 555. *Only because I can't afford a jem. *Before every one says just buy a used Jem, I'd like to know, from anyone's first hand experience, how a jem feels different than a 555.
I know for me, a jem just feels nicer than an RG series. *But I don't know if the difference is as pronounced with a 555. *Is a 555 closer to an RG, or a jem?
Any advice would be great. *
